the northern cemetery. principal burial ground of the city of stock. last resting place for sweden's most celebrated citizen is. not far from alfred nobel whose famous prize is bear his name lies another illustrious we. count falcon bernadotte a visible. like nobel his name is linked with peace as the first un mediator in the arab israeli conflict.
unlike nobel his life ended violence. like ben adult want to make pierce. have a little chance of doing so because the dungan lily understand the deep oaths of the conflict. on the seventeenth of september one thousand nine hundred forty apes shortly after arriving in jerusalem. bernard office was assassinated. the killers right wing is rains the stern gang people were seen this true patrick. they got off scot free. and one of them the structure mia. became the prime minister or fees for.
this is the story of how peace can be frustrated by extremism. our suster nation can turn the tide of history. with consequences that still scar the middle east. this is the story of killing the count. february one thousand nine hundred forty five. count folke a bunch of dots is about to board a nazi plane bound for but. as vice president of the swedish red cross he was leading the biggest humanitarian effort of world war two. he had come to germany to negotiate with find
a human nazi minister of the interior. this meeting would secure the release of thousands of concentration camp persons. by the end of the war bernadotte smith. known as the white buses. would successfully evacuees thirty thousand prisoners of over twenty nationalities to safety in sweden. one third of them were jews. in the aftermath of war those jews who had survived the holocaust began to leave a continent that had become for them a personal hell. of
to do. the big. like it hurts. to flee to palestine. english ships they discovered it us. they didn't the elo was. gone three. the british the ruling all thirty in palestine a decided to put a stop to the tide of jewish immigration. the tide the pumpkin swelling and since fascism had begun its march across.
in one thousand nine hundred thirty six local arab objections to both british colonial rule and mass jewish immigration into their homeland erupted into a full scale revolt. jewish settlements in palestine had been protecting themselves against sporadic arab attacks with the defense militia. the had gone up. in thirty six in the face of our early on suddenly it dawned. on the younger generation that unless they are away the to
undertake the military effort in the country the jews won't be able to stay so. defensive a source changed into an offensive he says. a more extreme group now emerged from the hakken up. called iraq on. the national military organization in the land of israel. in march one nine hundred thirty seven we're going launched a series of bomb attacks. against arab cafes markets buses and trains. with the cycle of violence in palestine growing. the british decided to act.
as a dangerous palace the conference is hoping to arrive at the solution of the other jewish problem of palestine. after a conference in london last attended by both arabs and jews the british government produced a white paper setting a limit on the jewish immigration to palestine for the next five years to bring peace to all that has been so beyond that it would be left to the arab majority to decide to the jews this was complete betrayal soon the british would feel their anger. on the twenty six the bogus one nine hundred thirty nine. it ago and started its own war against the british killing two offices in
a bomb attack. six days later the whole well it's descended into war. the name egypt we called off its campaign. so as not to hinder britain's fight against what they called the junos greatest enemy in the world. german nazis. but within a splinter group now emerged led by a man determined to fight all. of a hamster thought that britain was a greater enemy of the jews than down through germany. and he wanted to continue to fight the british during the second world war. in order to expel them.
in july one thousand nine hundred forty stern created a new militant breakaway from aragorn called lefty or fighters for the freedom of israel. to the british it was simply the stern gang. the fate of falcon bernadotte would be determined by these men. they wanted the british out of the middle east the germans wanted the british out of the middle east so decided to make common cause with the nazis tried to make contact with them in istanbul the nazis weren't interested nothing came of it. it was a mixture of stupidity and fanaticism they thought that they should join the enemy of england in order to obtain help for the girls in palestine which was just
stupid they were very brave and very stupid people. in february one thousand nine hundred forty two during his arrest in tel aviv by the british. average comes down and was shot dead. on the sixth the november one thousand nine hundred forty four left he commanded now by gets near struck back in an unexpected place. cairo. two assassins killed lord moyne the british minister resident in the middle east outside his home. it's hard for me. was a terrorist and not just he but the other members of the stern gang
defined themselves as terrorists and wrote that terrorism is a perfectly legitimate means for expelling the foreign occupier from the land of israel. after the end of world war two in one thousand nine hundred forty five as jewish organizations were honoring bernadotte for his work with the white buses. many of the holocaust survivors trying to enter palestine found their way odd. britain had refused to raise immigration limits set before the war. to the jews the betrayal now seemed even greater.
having one one ball britain found itself fighting on the other. this time against jewish militant groups. what developed was the kind of competition. the less say was the most extreme deal go to. become wards of the other door. and the hunger now became more extreme with other to. go and so the whole also became more extreme. violence and death riot be ancient streets of jerusalem.
terrorism here as in just fun tel aviv has been the chief outward sign of a critical situation. palestine continues to present one of the most obstinate problems of today. responding with the draconian counterinsurgency campaign the british arrested in. imposing the death penalty on convicted insurgents. in response. under the command of another future israeli prime minister menachem begin bombed the king david hotel. the main base for the british administration in palestine. killing
british arabs and jews alike. by october one thousand nine hundred forty seven jewish underground groups had killed one hundred twenty seven british servicemen. and. had been inspected by his majesty's government feel enough so that in the absence of a settlement fema asked for early. british forces and the british administration from. britain had washed its hands of a problem of its own making. the fate of palestine now lay with the united nations. nearly in november one thousand nine hundred forty seven the un general assembly
adopted resolution one eight one recommending that palestine be partitioned into separate arab and jewish states. to the owners of the united nations this isn't a recommend but this brings while devolution among the jewish community into rows along with the lobby. this was the first ever international recognition of the long hoped for jewish state. but the extremists saw no cause for celebration. they thought that the jews had the absolute try to the whole of palestine. and that the borders of the drew state shouldn't be defined by any foreign bodies like the united nations so they wanted greater ease rail as if that
existed in biblical times. in april one thousand nine hundred forty eight going to forces began a military operation to take control of arab areas assigned to the jewish state under the partition plan. extremist militias joined the effort but soon they had overstepped the mark. left that is the stern gang and you'll go in as the british call them participated in one famous atrocity which was of course called quest and massacre which occurred in the village of the area seen on the ninth of april one thousand nine hundred forty eight when about one hundred villagers were killed most of them civilians.
and this time mandate is indeed britain is relieved of about sudan and cunningham takes leave of the troops are shown exemplary patience in a fantasy. ten weeks more acquired completely with the departure of the last high commissioner of palestine the british mandate was a. at . the end of that same day in tel aviv david ben-gurion declared be establishment of the state of israel. the celebration would be short lived. within hours the egyptian air force would bomb the capital of the newly formed state.
at the same time the armies of egypt jordan syria and iraq crossed the borders into palestine. for as the maintenance of modern security and just as an urgent question which can fight in new york the united nations faced a major challenge to its power and prestige. the first arab israeli going. on the twentieth of may nineteenth forty eight the united nations named its first mediator in palestine. the man who would take on the task was count fulker bernadotte hero the white bustles. he was from that noble family he was a relative of the king and it's thought he could deal very good with people meeting
and making compromises. things like that. at the end of may nine hundred forty eight bernadotte left paris for the middle east. seen off by his american born wife estelle. in a pointed to echo of the white buses campaign bernadotte had his specially chartered plane painted white with the u.n. and red cross markings. into the account but it is cut by united nations that last hope mediate it was a record every time they did it rated him above suspicion of advantages of living in tel aviv is best up to his first task was to bring about a cease fire. which needed that he went to the different capitals in kind
of shuttle diplomacy which he really invented because everybody was very impressed about his energy here that the temple we used when he was traveling around and there you can see he made all possible efforts to bring this ceasefire about. after only ten days in the middle east bernadotte scored his first success. on the ninth of june he amounts to a four week truce. if it had been a food federal politician knowing all the tricks i'm not sure he would have succeeded better because. they were surprised by this total openness he never had this diplomatic roundabouts all the time and many people say that that was clear advantage. by the end of
june after weeks of diplomacy bernadotte was finally able to unveil a new plan for peace in palestine. bernadotte was a realist and he did not want to abandon the un partition plan but he wanted to modify it to fit in with a new reality on the ground. and if you look at the map of the un partition plan it doesn't make much sense it's three jewish enclaves with kissing points and then there is the arab state which is also fragmented so basically what you wanted to do is to give the jews the whole of the galilee in the north and the coastal plain but to deprive them of the negative and to give the negative to the arab state that there was not to be an independent palestinian
state by this time the arab part of palestine was to be incorporated with france drooled and. despite there being no independent state allocated to the palestinians bernadotte proposals did include one key provision for them. the right of return for refugees expelled by force from their homes in israeli controlled areas. better than a dog as number four how can i bear no doubt proposed the right of return and he managed to obtain a un resolution that this is a humanitarian right that can be ignored with no limits or numbers the complete and immediate right to return. and bernadotte planning included one more provision which would outrage the israelis. in his first peace
plan which i think was his biggest mistake he said that jerusalem would be inside the arab state because there was no possibility whatsoever to have that use agree to something like that. under bernadotte supplanting judaism's most holy place would come under the control of the arabs. jewish militants decided they must fight on in defense of jerusalem. the campaign against bernadotte was building and plans were soon being laid for killing account. marine theme parks are making a big splash in china. but are they

the greek island of rhodes. a world heritage site today it's one of the most popular tourist destinations in europe. rose's hotel is one of the oldest on the island. in the summer of one nine hundred forty eight count foca bernadotte the un's first mediator for palestine had chosen the island as his headquarters.
for the arrival of his american born wife estelle and that two sons fold and. ease the tension as bernadotte waited for the official response to his proposals to end the war that had broken out in palestine. after two weeks relaxing with his family. bernadotte set out on another round of shuttle diplomacy. one day with the red cross here before put this all. and i put it all and i was allowed to travel with you in the united nations they're paid to druce and. but i was told to stay the course. bernadotte had come to jerusalem to meet the israeli foreign minister moshe charrette israel's response to burn the dots plan was total rejection
i think they saw him as an enemy of the jewish state he was going to reduce by large measure the size of the state the jews were to have so they regarded him as pro arab basically and he was in some ways a an agent of the british government who are regarded rightly or wrongly by the israelis as anti zionist. after the failure of bernadotte first plan and with a full week troops coming to its end. fighting broke out again palestine. three days later bernadotte accompanied by his wife estelle flew into la guardia
back in the middle east and with a second fragile truce in place bernadotte began a new round of negotiations. but securing that peace seemed impossible. like an shanda a share in that but often they didn't have anything definite convinced either the arabs or the israelis that he had read or thought of the order of it so there was a lot of resistance from both sides to his proposal that the bill for the can for the. in mid august and exhausted bernadotte flew to sweden. he was to chair the international red cross conference. and it was a chance to see his family. he took me out for
a whole day we went to see a movie enters or football and things like that and i remember afterwards to having my father for myself a whole day was a heavy and a fantastic thing to happen. once. before returning to the middle east he arranged to meet estelle in paris three weeks later. for her birthday. it was a meeting he would never make. during the first two weeks of september one thousand nine hundred forty eight bernadotte spent what would prove to be the last days of his life in rhodes putting the final touches to a revised peace plan. completed on the sixteenth of september it contained a major concession to israel jerusalem the city would no longer be under
arab control it would be administered by the united nations. but this change had come to light. six days earlier in an apartment in tel aviv's ben yehuda street the commanders of leahy the stern gang had come together to seal the fate of focus bernadotte. not an alien mole voted against the assassination of then the door. doctor he said i have. voted for the s.s. in the nation anything from the cost he's in favor of the assassination of the un envoy. so it was two against one that's how
the decision was made. on the seventeenth of september one thousand nine hundred forty eight at ten o'clock in the morning. count full cabinet officers landed at kalandia airport north of jerusalem. shortly after these three car convoy arrived at the mandelbaum dates. the crossing points into the west i'm jewish part of jerusalem. waiting at the gates was a liaison officer assigned to him by the israeli government. captain moshi.
then thought the count noticed that mr hellman was armed with a pistol so he turned to him and said no no no no you have to get rid of that pistol give it to the other officers here you're under the protection of the un and when you're protected by the un there are no weapons. with no military escort no protection other than the u.n. flag. burning docks convoy and that jewish jerusalem. after a few hours spent visiting the former british governor's house they headed to the y.m.c.a. for the night. as they left andres servo a french colonel traveling with the u.n. convoy asked tilman to do him a favor. and i thought right away the
liaison officer swapped seats in berne adults car and goes to sit in another car in the convoy care should be the move good lord daughter. and switches with colonel servo who asked for the chance to thank bernadotte for the red cross campaign that had saved his wife from a german concentration camp. so close wife had been liberated by one of the white fusses. his gratitude would cost him his life. heading towards the y.m.c.a. the three car convoy was suddenly halted. an army jeep pulled out from the side street to block the road. three men
in israeli army fatigues sprang out of the jeep. they are they block the road and then two of the assassins come out steinberg and ben must share and puncture the tires of the vehicles in front. of sharon before your body show no they don't know which car the counties in and then suddenly the count opens the window of his car so he can see what's happening. to show he his the shots they are bad news they must be all sure then they identify him and joshua cohen goes to the car puts his schmeiser submachine gun in through the window and unloads on everyone sitting in the receipt of a shot of the. six bullets tore into bernard dogs left arm throat and chest. cohen kept firing
pumping eighteen bullets into colonel sorrow. in a matter of seconds the assassins had made their escape. by five o'clock in the afternoon bernadotte lay dead in hospital alongside him colonels. i heard it on the radio which was a bit deplorable in many ways the news had come first of all two was a swedish king and he baited with members of the family who would inform my mother and that debate carried on so much that the swedish radio assumed that the family had been told but we hadn't so therefore it came as a bit of a shock and i got up and went to my mother and said something's happened to my father and she said i felt that i had
a feeling. she knew that he was there. the next day bernadotte body left israel on the same white plane lettered carried him in search of news. it was on its way to paris where bernadotte had been due to present his second peace plan to a un meeting. and to meet his wife to celebrate her birthday. politicians and diplomats representing their countries of the un meeting in paris came to all the airports to pay their last respects. with the assassination of its mediator the u.n.
had failed its first great test. that evening bernadotte body arrived in stockholm and was carried to the family home. why father lay in a room in our house. but my mother didn't think it a good idea and neither did i that i should go in and see him like that so i didn't have a saw. five days later swedes came on to the streets of stockholm to bid farewell to bernadotte .
ninety year old king good stuff arrived to mourn the death of his beloved nephew. scouts and red cross workers from the two organizations bernadotte chaired the coffin along its way to the northern cemetery. in israel prime minister david ben-gurion ordered an immediate hunt for the killers . but it soon became apparent that the hunt was not what it seemed. moshe hilman the liaison officer traveling with bernadotte had recognized the
driver of the jeep used by the assassins of the a lot of emotion they all share yeah my dad went to macheda dianne who was then the military commander of jerusalem and said to him listen i received a threatening letter that said hilman be careful why because he knew one of them but he said he didn't want to mess anything up and diane said to him you know what let's leave things in secret for the time being we didn't hear we didn't see. with bernadotte death his plan also done right. but the legacy of his assassination had only just begun. israel covertly strengthened during the truce successfully launched a series of military operations to drive out the arab bombings. israel at the end of the forty eight war was interested in retaining its conquests and all the territory which it had in its hands which included of course all of galilee and a
the negative we're going to have relinquished them in line with what the bernadotte had planned. i doubt it. in one thousand nine hundred forty nine a series of armistice agreement was signed in bernadotte former headquarters in rhodes between israel and a terrible neighbors. but the solutions bernadotte had been seeking and had paid for with his life remained elusive. but if of course the jerusalem problem is still under resort that this day and ben adopt wanted the city to be part of the arab state or under international administration the proposal for the immediate return of fifty g.'s if that had happened relations between the zionists
and palestinians would have been a better more able to find the common future for palace that the one for the thing . with israel victorious ben-gurion announced a general amnesty. bernadotte killers were freed to return to normal life in the new state of israel. yahshua cohen would head south to the newly occupied negative to a kibbutz called his day buck. in years to come prime minister david ben-gurion would make this place his home. usual coin was one of the founders of this there because he puts the book and was the closest member of the kibbutz to bingo real they were going to get there before the morning march in the evening march and they were talking in the were friendly and i thought to
myself wow this was the guy we'll bring gloria wanted to fly anywhere he wanted to find him to crash in and now there are their friends. while bernadotte killer became a friend of the prime minister. one of the men who ordered the killing would eventually rise to that role of himself. being. the great a very humiliated when the right wing swept to power for the first time in one nine hundred seventy seven. menachem begin the former leader became prime minister. yitzhak shamir the former lead he commander became speaker of the israeli parliament the knesset. i've never given up rather.
than begin with and show me or to get it. for this is not really unusual. except that show me a will of an honest to goodness door with the rich begin with not. show me a war than. lead best lead. undergone operations. under a palestinian uprising the first intifada provoked a brutal reaction. of ups say f. those stop these horses of the value of its or for ink stalls or wounding people it use lies. in one
thousand nine hundred ninety two israeli politics veered to chop the left. sacked rabin leader of the labor party came to power as prime minister. he quickly began to secure peace deals after decades of struggle with the arabs. but right wing extremism was still alive in israel. and in november one thousand nine hundred ninety five while attending a peace rally in tel aviv. itzhak rabin like bernadotte paid the ultimate price for the pursuit of peace. he was killed by one of his own countrymen.
a peace which had seemed within reach. was once again snatched away. in sweden the. maria full cabinet office has faded. except in this place. the royal palace in stockholm. on the twenty fifth of february two thousand and twelve king called gustav of sweden announced that his newborn granddaughter would be cold estelle. is there he was the wife of a former bengal and now to me it's
a clear rare demonstration that they want in some way to. do honor called battle and if this baby would have been and always i guess he would have made for the. second in line to the throne and princess estelle may one day be queen of sweden. or christening has rekindled public interest in by an adult's life story. but in this house in gothenburg there is one man for whom the count story has been a life's work. in one nine hundred fifty seven son a person was a member of a swedish un but tiny and guarding the armistice line between egypt and israel.
